Thank you for taking time to read the Colorado Litigation Report. The CLR is for the reader whose Inbox is full and has little time for yet another source of news, or yet another email that will never be read. Posts will be engaging, tell the story of the case, and summarize the legal result — in about 30 seconds. Each post will have the name of the case and a link to the original PDF on the Court’s website, as well as a link to the Colorado Bar Association’s reproduction.
[Due to time constrains, the CLR no longer posts all court of appeals civil cases].
When it comes to Colorado Supreme Court coverage, the CLR is the most comprehensive. The CLR provides a single place to find certiorari grants and a list of issues denied, but which one or more Justices would have granted. This is a feature I have added for the upcoming 2012-2013 session. If you are considering filing a petition, it is a valuable resource for researching what issues will appeal to certain Justices. Denied issues will be listed for each Justice, and are word-searchable. See the “Certiorari” page for more details.
The CLR is easy to read, easy to use, and it is all in one place. What does that mean for you? As a concise one-stop shop for Colorado civil and commercial legal updates, cases, and changes in the law, you can read a post, know you have the latest information on Colorado law, then move on to the rest of your busy day.
- The best use would be to “follow” this blog and use it as a free research resource. We all have full Inboxes, so why get another email? Micro-summaries address that concern. The emails will be short and reader-friendly. If you want to comment and add your own views, visit the site. Otherwise, what you get is short and sweet, no long detailed explanations.
- You can also follow the CLR on Facebook, where new content will be automatically posted. This is another opportunity to get the information you need, even without an email. Or add the CLR to your news feed (like Google Reader or My Yahoo)? Just copy and paste this link into the Add field: https://coloradolitigation.wordpress.com/feed/
- Posts will also include occasional updates related to changes in the Rules of Civil Procedure, the Civil Access Pilot Project, and other changes to civil litigation in Colorado.
